As part of the release of its documentary project entitled Unplugged, PACE today has released an exclusive extended interview with Jay Timmons, President and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). The association is the nation’s largest industrial trade organization, representing nearly 12 million manufacturing workers and operating in all 50 states. In past years, NAM has been one of Washington, D.C.’s most influential voices on the direction of U.S. energy policy.
Mr. Timmons, who interviewed with PACE at NAM headquarters in the nation’s capital in April 2011, discusses the direction of U.S. energy and the need to maintain the reliable and affordable flow of power to the nation’s manufacturing sector. He also discusses current regulatory policies from the EPA and the effect those policies could have on American competitiveness.
